It was hot work delivering leaflets to three postal districts in Central Croydon today. A team of three of us did so; Tony Power, Neil Cropper and myself spent 3 hours on the job. Thereafter Neil and I went and did a walkabout in Beckenham before we ate a late lunch in Chom.
Nobody should absolutely trust political opinion polls but I have seen five published last night:
Opinium Conservatives 45%, Labour 35%, Liberal Democrats 7% and UKIP 5%.
Com Res Conservatives 46%, Labour 34%, Liberal Democrats 8% and UKIP 5%.
ORB Conservatives 44%, Labour 36%, Liberal Democrats 7% and UKIP 5%.
You Gov Conservatives 43%, Labour 36%, Liberal Democrats 9% and UKIP 4%.
ICM Conservatives 46%, Labour 32%, Liberal Democrats 8% and UKIP 5%.
Taken as an average of all five measurements that suggests we Conservatives are currently polling about 10% above the Labour Party. I wish the lead would have been as great as it was just two weeks ago but it isn’t and that is a fact. However, I believe and, of course, hope the difference between Conservatives and Labour will grow again over the last 10 days before 8 June.
